List of The Local AccuWeather Channel affiliates

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of current and former affiliated stations of The Local AccuWeather Channel.

The Local AccuWeather Channel is a 24-hour, weather-oriented, commercially-sponsored broadcast and cable television network in the United States owned and operated by AccuWeather, Inc., which is headquartered in State College, Pennsylvania.

The service provides weather-related content to television affiliates for broadcast on cable, digital subchannels, and digital cable by certain broadcast television affiliates in the United States.

Because some stations also offer the Local AccuWeather Channel via live streaming video on their websites, the Local AccuWeather Channel should not be confused with the new online-only, streaming weather channel announced by AccuWeather and the Fox Owned Stations in May 2012.[1][2]
